Yep, last night I finally nutted up and asked out this girl I'm interested in. I've "asked out" girls before but it's usually something like: "hey we should hang out and get lunch," not very indicative of romantic interest. This was a bonafide proposal for a date.

I called her in the afternoon and she didn't pick up so I let the ball be in her court and waited for her response. While at dinner with a friend I got a text from her saying hey, what's up, we should hang out. So I call her back a few minutes later after we left and asked her out for Saturday. She said she was busy.

BUT. She didn't end it there. She offered another time, next week, and we settled on Wednesday. I figure I'll contact her on like Sunday or Monday to hammer out the details.

Best part was that my two female roommates (I was hanging out with them and one's boyfriend last night) both thought it was sweet and a nice touch that I actually called to set it up, since in their experience most guys my age just text

Yay! It sounds like she's interested, and I hope it works out for you.

Guess common sense and courtesy are so extinct, they became novelties!

Thanks y'all. Yeah, I figured she was interested when she texted me "Hey! Are you in town? Let's hang out!" first time a girl's done that lol. I admit I started overanalyzing the way she said "uhm" after I suggested we see each other on Wednesday, but my roomies both said that if they weren't interested then they simply would have said they were busy and left it at that.

@Sierra I'm glad my dad raised me right with regards to that lol.

Good job man, stick with what feels right and do what you would naturally do. If you believe yourself to be a well-rounded, respectful, decent guy with a legitimate interest in a relationship, then doing what fits your profile will eventually lead to someone who appreciates those qualities that are naturally you.

All it takes is one.

Great stuff! This will become your standard operating procedure from now on and I predict growing confidence and success for you on the dating front.

Now do youself a favor and CALL, don't TEXT to confirm the details.

Here's a little secret. Hearing your VOICE taps into a sense that texting does not. And your dating experience will be enhanced by engaging all five of the woman's senses--we are very sensitive creatures!
